Nearly Nicked from Nick: Cauliflower and Cheddar Soup
So my challenge this week is to clear out the cold zone. I turned to Nick Nairn, a TV chef from the colder climes of Scotland for inspiration. His website has a lovely recipe for Cauliflower and Mulled Cheddar soup. I've followed this to the letter previously with some success but a bit of creativity was needed as we did not have half the ingredients called for. The cauliflower in the fridge was much weedier than the large specimen called for. There was no cream or the parsley needed to infuse an oil to drizzle over the final product. And as for the 'cheddar' with a dubious Scottish provenance (surely it should be from Somerset?) well forget it!
